American Humane Presents McKamey Animal Center with Feed the Hungry Grant

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, July 8, 2020American Humane, the country’s first national humane organization, today announced that McKamey Animal Center (MAC) received a grant from American Humane’s Feed the Hungry fund. Located in Chattanooga, Tennessee, MAC works to eliminate animal overpopulation, cruelty and neglect.

“On behalf of all of our kitties and our staff, we want to thank you American Humane for your funding,” said Stormy Farr, Feline Supervisor at McKamey Animal Center.

MAC is a 30,000 square foot, open door shelter. In 2019, it served more than 7,000 animals; caring for those facing cruelty and neglect in addition to some of the most ill and injured. As a community partner, MAC offers adoption services, trap neuter return for community cats, wildlife rehab, hurricane relief to impacted areas, emergency boarding for pets of victims of domestic violence, and humane educational services. The organization also works to stop animal cruelties such as animal fighting, puppy mills, pet hoarding and neglect for all domestic pets.
